Dear Neighbor,

This is my blog for news and information on my hometown Lower Macungie Township! In January 2014 I was sworn in for a 4 year term as township Commissioner. I am humbled and grateful for the support of Lower Macungie Residents. We prevailed in the 2013 election running a grassroots campaign that focused on quality of life and fiscal sustainability through smart growth. The election was a referendum on the unpopular development decisions and “dumb growth” policies of prior boards.

As a lifelong resident of Lower Macungie and a local business owner I am proud to serve as Lower Macungie Township Commissioner. This is blog serves as a record of 3 years of advocating for A Better Way to Grow. The opinions here represent my own and not the townships. Please browse the site. I also welcome questions and comments always. Feel free to email me at

I am running for re-election this November on my record of results. Over the last few years Lower Macungie Twp:

  • We successfully reduced property tax bills for homeowners using the homestead program. As it stands Lower Macungie’s property tax is the lowest of any suburban community in the entire Lehigh Valley.
  • We have preserved nearly 300 more acres of open space and farmland over the last 3 years.
  • We’ve become the most transparent local government in the Lehigh Valley.

While we accomplished much, there is still work to do. Therefore, I’d appreciate your vote for re-election on Nov. 7th 2017.
